What are the undesirable qualities of good writing?
Good writing distracts you while you're crossing the street and, boom, you get squished by an SUV!
Good writing convinces you to buy an SUV, and the polar ice cap melts!
Good writing makes you jump off a cliff just because good writing said you should!
Good writing makes you want to impress Jodie Foster!
Good writing makes you want to become a crappy best-selling author, and you do, which then leads to deforestation, and the Earth is destroyed, again!
Good writing wants to be expensive!
